Lots of Everton fans have been left to gush over an update involving Niels Nkounkou.
Writing in his latest piece for The Athletic, Patrick Boyland has shared that the left-back is set to called up to the France Olympics squad after some of the players in their original selection have suffered injuries.
Should Nkounkou start for Everton?
The French are set to play Japan, South Africa and Mexico in Group A of the tournament, and Nkounkou could well play a part.
It will be a great experience for the 20-year-old, who is currently behind Lucas Digne in the pecking order at Goodison Park, and if he impresses Rafa Benitez, then the Spaniard may be inclined to give him some runouts in the first team ahead in the new 2021/22 season.
Nonetheless, Nkounkou will be hoping that he can play a part in trying to win the Gold Medal for his country in Tokyo.
